    Hey everybody,

    Wow! It has been a while since I updated this blog. Sorry for that. I’ll be around a bunch more in the next few months!

    I took a brief trip a few weeks ago to go photograph grassland birds out in Ohio, meeting up with Matthew Studebaker, Greg Schneider, and Brian Zwiebel, at different times. Overall, it didn’t go too well, but I had a few good birds, that’s for sure. Here’s a beautiful Henslow’s Sparrow that Brian found singing in Belmont County, Ohio.

    Two things I forgot to add–

    I’m just beginning the daunting task of completely revamping my website! Seeing as I am still six months behind with my processing, it’ll be a few months in the making, that’s for sure. Also, I’m enrolled for classes at Northern Virginia Community College for this fall, where I’ll attend for a year before transferring to another school.

    Sunrise over the Mather Gorge, Great Falls National Park, Virginia/Maryland.

    Hey there,

    I hope everybody enjoyed the past holiday weekend. I sat around and did a whole lot of nothing, and it was honestly wonderful. Over the past few weeks, and hopefully for the next few weeks, I’ve been trying to make the most of local summer photo ops. I’ve been concentrating on the White-tailed Deer fawns up in Big Meadows of Shenandoah National Park, sunrises, sunsets, and the resident Great Blue Herons of Great Falls National Park, and I’ve been searching for decent locations to photograph Least Bittern and Pied-billed Grebe, since they’re among the few area birds that are easily photographed in the summer that we have here. If all goes as planned, some time soon I’ll be making a weekend trip up north to photograph Common Loons.

    Anyhow, I’ve been making many a sunrise/sunset trip to Great Falls over the past few weeks. I haven’t had great luck with the Herons, but on a morning trip with my friend Chris, we had this nice sunrise.

    Screw Auger Falls, Gulf Hagas Preserve, Maine

    Hey everybordy,

    It has been a while, I know! I’ve been extremely busy since returning from Maine, and haven’t had much time to shoot or work on the computer! I’m wrapping up with processing my Maine shots, and here’s one I’d like to share with you all. Ian and I hiked the Gulf Hagas Preserve, in the north woods of Maine, on a cold and wet day. Luckily, the cold weather kept the blackflies away. However, the mosquitoes were in full force! This was the first waterfall we encountered, Screw Auger Falls, and it was by far my favorite.
